The Story of a River, Part 6

9 June 2009

Rivers go through some crazy period in their lives. During the journey over the flat plains the river desperate for a downhill slope begins to weave and meander across the lands. Each turn it takes creates more soil erosion resulting in greater turns and weaves. In the extreme this results in ox-bow lakes isolating whole bodies of water.

Our lives are often like these as we go through plateau periods we too begin to meander across life and begin to leave pockets of isolated moments. We begin to experience isolation and loneliness. It is only when we get reflection from an outsider do we realize what we have become and what to do to correct these. Isolation can be just as destructive as floods and result in defining moments that change our lives.
